Two Weizmann scientists who have received funding from the BIRAX programme, Prof Eldad Tzahor and Dr Liran Shlush, were in London in March for a two day scientific meeting which included a reception hosted by the British Council to celebrate UK-Israel Science Day and the launch of the new BIRAX Ageing Programme.

While in London, the two scientists attended a breakfast at the Brooks’s Club, one of London’s most prestigious and exclusive venues. They discussed their research with a small group of guests who had visited Israel last year as part of a Brooks’s Club tour of the “Holy Land”. The tour included a visit to the Weizmann campus which was considered one of the highlights of the trip. The breakfast was hosted by long-term Weizmann supporter, Anthony Brooke, and David Wills, who organised the tour to Israel. The breakfast provided an excellent opportunity for guests to hear from the scientists about their latest research. A copy of the book A Bold Experiment was given to the hosts to be placed in the Club’s library and hopefully entice other members to come and visit the Weizmann Institute.
